Ronaldo's DNA Sought In Rape Case
(CNN) Las Vegas police investigating a rape allegation against Cristiano Ronaldo have sent a warrant to authorities in Italy requesting a sample of the Portuguese football superstar's DNA, a police spokeswoman said Thursday.
"The LVMPD is taking the same steps in this case as in any other sexual assault to facilitate the collection of DNA evidence," Officer Laura Meltzer said.
The Journal reported investigators want to see whether Ronaldo's DNA matches DNA found on Kathryn Mayorga's dress.
Mayorga has said in a lawsuit that Ronaldo raped her in a Las Vegas hotel room in 2009 while she repeatedly screamed no.
After Mayorga filed suit, police reopened a criminal investigation into the case, which includes results of a medical exam.
